Notes

deadlists says "The Doin' That Rag through High Time sequence often circulates labeled AUD but is probably SBD with very bad levels." To me it sounds like it's definitely an AUD....

Ummm - I'm short on time so.... this was my 1st Show.
The Dead were Headliners.
Joe Cocker & Grease Band were second on the bill. Grease Band opened up w two instrumentals then Cocker came out.
1st song he sang: She Came In Through the Bathroom Window; this was before the Beatles released Abbey Road.
Garcia was on pedal steel for the first 2 tunes starting with Green Green Grass of Home.
This may be the closest to an accurate setlist I've seen.
I've still got the newspaper ad for the show.
When I've got more time I'll scan and download it.

Subject: You ain't gonna learn what you don't want to know
This archive is not the true show.
I was there. I was 15 years old at the time and, remember it pretty well.
For around $2.75 we saw The Tribe, the Grateful Dead and the headliner Joe Cocker.
on the first disc. They did NOT play Mountains on the Moon.
The High Time is from another show thogh they did play it. Mama Tried followed Green, Green Grass.
They left out the joke told by Weir about the bus, the dod and the brick.
The 2 Disc is not THAT show. All of it.
Dark Star included a keyboard lead by PigPen that lasted a few minutes. They went right into the Other one and that ended the show.
There was no other music played. They were pusshed for time.
I did have a lot of fun though climbing up and down the columns that surrounded the Pavilion.
I do remember Jerry giving a quick nod of satisfation at the end of the Other One and we all then saw Joe Cocker for 45 minutes and went home. The only songs here in this archive that actully were played are Green, Green Grass, Slewfoot and Mama tried. That's it. All other recoridng in this (?) archive are not of this show.
The Dark Star was Exceptional and very trippy when I ran into an actual person who had the reel to reel recording of it.
Sadly though I may begin to think nobody has the whole show. It may be they ALL ran out of TAPE!
Truly.
Nobody mentions that Jerry sat down and played Pedal Steel guitar either.
I had to write this review. You have to know the truth.
Thank you,
PS. I bought my first chili dog that night. One boy fell in the columns and hurt himself and we all stopped climbing up and down them at that point.
grbrant.

Subject: disc 2
only reviewing disc 2 which was a bunch of great jamming, sound quality not perfect but a good little snippet of 69

you're all missing out if you skip this
Reviewer: oh_uh_um_ah - favoritefavoritefavorite - April 23, 2008
Subject: Get the second disc.
Granted, the first disc (first 7 songs) is poor quality/distorted audio audience recording and can be bypassed. It's unfortunate because the performance sounds great.

The second disc from Dark Star on (last 5 songs)is actually less hissy than the previous night, July 11th, 1969.

The audio does have some tape issues.

1 star for the first disc audio. 5 stars for the second disc audio.

Eat, drink, be merry and listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the love.

Subject: Turn On Your Lovelight
Don't pass on this show without giving the Lovelight a listen, it's tremendous! A really funny version with Bobby doing "man on the street" interviews, the "speak into the microphone" segment with crazy people singing and saying "lets go get high" and Pigpen trying to get Mickey to sing!! This version is truly weird and it sounds like they were having a ball at this show. They also sound really highhh!
The Eleven is also awesome on this show. There are sound quality issues here but at least give The Eleven>Lovelight a listen.

Subject: Second disc is worth a downoad
Granted, the sound quality of the first disc is awful, the second disc, from "Dark Star" on is as good as the previous day's tape. The show from the 11th along with the second disc make a nice 3 disc set. It sounds like there is an acoustic guitar played on the beginning of Dark Star. First disc gets a one star, second disc is at least a 3.5 or 4, for the time.

Subject: Completists only
The sound on this one is a little rough. I can't speak for the band's performance since I didn't have the patience to listen to it at this quality. For completists only...
